I worked at Home Depot for about 4 years and it's one of the worst jobs I've ever had. My supervisor literally leaked all my personal information to other co-workers. He told them where I lived and also gave them my phone number so they could continue to harras me online. There's no such thing as privacy in Home Depot even though they always have you watch videos about not leaking anyone's personal information. And when you try and report all your incidents to management you're basically ostracized and made to look like you're the one doing something wrong. If you'd like to work for a company that plays favorites and doesn't care about hard working employees this is the job for you. If you want to work for a company that only cares about slackers that want to be in your personal business then this is a great company for you, otherwise run the other way.

Needing full time and not on a what ifs constantly wondering if your doing a great job and if so it really doesn't matter cause at any time you can be let go especially if your seasonal it's a dam if you do or dam if you don't. the hours are perfect but once you become the team your not sure if you get to keep the same hours or if they decrease then your struggling paycheck to paycheck. it's the stability if that's what you need then that's a good reason to leave. the Home Depot is a great place to work the employees are very respectful and very helpful I felt like family but I need stability

Store management needs to be better qualified. 75% of the management at my store doesn’t have a clue. They stand around looking at computers all day, and then give conflicting tasks to associates. Time management, communication, and resource planning need to be stressed. Standing around telling tales to the minions that want to idolize them doesn’t get the work done. Most the some poor sap with a better work ethic will get work done, and finally get fed up and quit, leaving a bunch of slackers. But there’s usually another sap that comes along and starts doing all the work... High School mentality of most your workforce keeps your profitability static. The gyrations and promotions of corporate might give it a bump once in a while, but having effective managers and well trained associates who are accountable and motivated will benefit the bottom line much more. You can be a slacker at my store and just get moved from one dept to the next without ever having do any work, because the management doesn’t want to deal with personnel problems. I finally got tired of having to babysit millennials and quit. Hire people who have some life experience, and time in the workplace.
